Immunization Records – MyIR!

MyIR imageYour Family’s Immunization Records – Online, Anytime Through MyIR!

When you or your family members are vaccinated, your vaccine history gets entered into our state’s immunization information system (IIS) operated by the Washington State Department of Health’s Office of Immunization and Child Profile. This helps healthcare providers and school nurses track vaccine records. When you change healthcare providers, this database eliminates the need to transfer immunization records. Most healthcare providers enter vaccines into the IIS; ask if yours does and encourage them to if they don’t.

Now, you too can access your own and your child’s immunization records online through a portal called MyIR. It’s simple (and free) to sign up. The secure system even allows you to print out a pre-filled Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS), which is the form required for entry to schools and child cares, without an additional visit or call to your healthcare provider. This makes it so much more convenient to provide required immunization records.

Here are the simple steps to get you signed up!

Please note: There may be some vaccines you or your family members received that don’t appear on the immunization record in MyIR, such as the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. HPV vaccine is sometimes given by a healthcare provider confidentially. Since MyIR doesn’t know which HPV vaccines were given confidentially or not, all HPV vaccinations are hidden on immunization records in MyIR. Contact your healthcare provider if you need a more complete record of you or your family’s immunization history.
